My Time to Craft #459 Things in the Sky

Good afternoon, my lovelies! I hope you're all looking forward to a relaxing weekend. We have had an exciting week chez the Manor - we have a new car! Yes, we traded in our black Ford Focus for... a black Ford Focus! 'Here come da new car, same as da old car!' It's very nippy, but most important of all - I set the radio to receive cricket broadcasts. 

There is also a new challenge at My Time to Craft! and our theme is Things in the Sky. That's birds, aeroplanes, balloons, bats - but they have to be the focal point of your card, just adding a tiny butterfly won't cut it, I'm afraid. 

I went with Balloons.

I am very proud of the background, which I made with Broken China Distress Oxide and a stencil.  The die-cut balloons are from a box magazine by Hunkydory, and I used red and green mirri card to make them.

The strip at the bottom is from an ancient paper pad that was also a magazine gift, and I edged it with blue peel-offs by Love from Lizi.  The sentiment came from one of Lizi's kits last year.  Finally, I used gold glitter stickers to give some bling.

Check out our Challenge blog and have a look at my teamies' fab examples.

Thanks for looking and take care!

love Mags B x
